Endeavour Energy plans bigger digitised substation

Endeavour
Energy
is
planning
a
second,
larger
deployment
of
digital
substation
technology
in
the
infrastructure
that
will
power
the
Nancy-Bird
Walton
Airport
in
Sydney’s
west.

As
reported
by

iTnews

last
month,
Endeavour
Energy’s
first
digital
zone
substation
at
South
Erskine
Park

recently
went
live
.

Digitisation

replacing
thousands
of
copper
connections
with
fibre-linked
sensors

provides
both
capital
and
operational
savings,
and
delivers
a
more
“future-ready”
grid.

With
the
contract
to
build
a
digital
transmission
substation
to
supply
the
western
Sydney
airport
and
its
surrounds,
Endeavour
Energy
will
now
deploy
the
digitised
substation
on
a
much
larger
scale.

“Endeavour
Energy
will
construct
a
new
digital
transmission
substation
and
electrical
infrastructure
to
provide
electricity
to
the
1780-hectare
airport
site
and
surrounding
business
hubs,”
the
company
said
in
a
statement.

“The
high
voltage
indoor
transmission
substation
will
initially
provide
120MVA
of
capacity
but
has
the
capability
to
grow
and
expand
with
the
airport.”

A
spokesperson
told

iTnews

other
critical
infrastructure
earmarked
for
the
region
includes
large
scale
batteries,
EV
chargers
and
microgrids.

A
spokesperson
said
“transmission
substations
typically
supply
five-to-10
zone
substations”.

The
utility’s
CEO
Guy
Chalkley
called
the
airport
development
“one
of
the
largest
infrastructure
projects
in
Australia”.
